[resolved] Legacy support removed (5 posts)

    Removing Legacy support is not a move I really like. It seems I am stuck keeping this module on an old version until I have transfered all my themes (I have multiple sites) to the new version. What's the reason for removing legacy support? Is there any alternative?

    The reason for removing legacy support was the growing complexity of the code required in order to maintain it, and thereby support it.

    When I released it to support v2.0 I tried to be open about the fact that legacy wouldn't be maintained indefinitely and with v2.0.2 I put a notice that v2.0.3 would finally remove the support as I didn't want anyone with any nasty surprises.

    We have to strike a balance between creating a plugin I can maintain while we work on bigger projects might earn us a living.

    I'm sorry this has caused you inconvenience, but if I was to be able to maintain the plugin going forward, it had to be done.

    Except for the CSS compiler in v2.0.3, there's currently not a huge difference between that and v2.0.2.2. So for now, you're not missing out too much.

    As for alternative, no, I haven't seen another plugin that offers this functionality on WordPress.org for free.

    I hope this helps to explain our position better.
    Thanks,
    Paul.

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for the response. I see your point and respect your decision. I'll guess I've got to speed up the rewriting a bit ;) Let's hope other people with the same problem as me will find this thread an answer as well.

    Thanks for the great work you're doing on the plugin, by the way :)

    I'm happy to hear you understand. The last thing we want is to mess people around. It's always a tough decision to make and I assure you, we don't make it lightly.

    Good point about other people finding this thread - I'll add it to the FAQ so it's easily accessible.

    And of course, no problem - we enjoy working on it - lots of people seem to like it and the feedback is great so we're happy to continue on it.

    Let me know if you have any suggestions for future releases.
    Cheers,
    Paul.

    I'm a software developer myself, so I understand the need to move forward. I was just unsure whether that was the reason for removing legacy support since it was removed during a minor revision number bump. It's not often than a "minor" release has such changes.

    Thanks,

    Maarten
